The Evanston Police Department announced three promotions on  June 15. Commander James Pickett (center), who has been overseeing operations at the Evanston Animal Shelter during the transition from C.A.R.E. to the City and now to S.A.F.E., is now Deputy Chief Pickett. Also promoted were Brian Henry (left) to Commander and Joseph Bush (right) to sergeant. Officers and their families filled Council chambers – and family members pinned the new shields on their loved ones.
